The Professional Development Grant for Artists (also known as the Regional Artist Project Grant) provides financial support to committed, gifted individual artists and small, unincorporated groups of collaborating artists. The grant (up to $1500) is designed to support projects that will advance the applicant’s career in demonstrable ways. Career development opportunities may arise at different stages of a career; therefore, the grant is open to emerging and established artists in dance, drama, film/media, literary/playwriting, music and visual art. The 2018 application period has concluded and re-opens January, 2019.
